The public, generally, can take but little interest in the following pages. 
They are intended principally for the use of the descendants of RICH- 
ARD HAVEN of Lynn, Mass., who came from England, about two hun- 
dred years ago. To them they are respectfully offered, as containing 
some account of their ancestry, and collateral kindred, which may be inter- 
esting to most of them, and which they might not otherwise have obtained. 

The town and church records of Lynn, Framingharn, Hopkinton, Hol- 
liston and Sherburne, and the Registries of Probate, and of Deeds, at Cam- 
bridge, have been principally relied on. And much assistance has been 
derived by comparing these with the recollections of aged persons, and 
by examining ancient papers, and the inscriptions on tomb-stones. For 
the full account of the Portsmouth branch, the reader is indebted to the 
kindness of Mr. Horace A. Haven, a distinguished graduate, at Cambridge, 
in the class of 1842, whose recent death has extinguised the fond and just 
hopes of his numerous friends. 

The research has been extended much beyond what was, at first, con- 
templated, or was deemed practicable. And, after all, there are several 
branches, that have not been traced, and others but imperfectly. This has 
been owing sometimes to the impossibility, and sometimes to the difficulty 
and trouble of pursuing the inquiry ; and sometimes also to the indiffer- 
ence, procrastination, and neglect of persons at a distance, to whom letters 
have been addressed, asking for information.* 

The Author began with little knowledge of his ancestors beyond his 
grand parents. The first inducement to look further was a statement, in 

*To give a specimen, I wrote to an elderly gentleman, asking some account of 
his branch. He answered promptly that a worse source of information could not 
have been sought ; that he never knew before that he had any ancestors beyond 
his grand parents ; but that he distinctly remembered his uncle John's girls, and, to 
speak poetically, they were Oily, and Anna, and Polly, and Fanny ; that he had 
asked his brother John about the matter, who said he had a letter from me, some 
two years before, asking the same information ; and that he supposed John would 
answer, when he should have had a reasonable time to think of it. 


Farmer's Genealogical Register, that " JOSEPH, the eldest son of 
RICHARD HAVEN of Lynn, was one of the Jirst settlers in Fram- 
ingham, and was the Grandfather of the Rev. SAMUEL HAVEN, D. D. 
of Portsmouth" The same, in substance, had been stated in Lewis' 
History of Lynn. Knowing that his Grandmother Stone was a sister of 
Dr. Haven, he began searching the records of Framingham, and the other 
towns, for the names of JOSEPH Haven, and his descendants. Two of that 
name were found ; one of whom was the father, and the other the mater- 
nal uncle of Dr. Haven. After much perplexity, and fruitless conjecture, 
there was no reason to believe that JOSEPH Haven, the son of Richard, ever 
came to Framingham ; no mention being made of him after his birth, at 
Lynn, in 1649. In the search, however, it was ascertained, beyond doubt, 
that three of his brothers, viz : JOHN, NATHANIEL and MOSES, 
settled in Framingham ; that JOHN and MOSES were the two Grand- 
fathers of Dr. Haven ; and, that HANNAH HICHINS and MARY BAL- 
LORD, of Lynn, were his two Grandmothers ; which is his full allowance, 
whatever may have become of Joseph. 

The tomb-stone of Joseph H. Esq. of Framingham, the father of Dr. H., 
shows that he was sixteen years old in 1714 ; and the Probate Records, 
of that year, show that a guardian was appointed over " JOSEPH HAVEN, 
aged 16, son of the late JOHN HAVEN, of Framingham" There is 
much other evidence, ALL tending the same way. Among other things, it 
will be seen that Joseph is the only son of Richard Haven, not mentioned 
in his will. 

Whether the method, which has been adopted, be original is unknown 
to the author ; he having never seen an attempt to trace both sexes through 
so many generations. It was found difficult to pursue any single branch, 
without referring to a subsequent page, for a continuation. The next gen- 
eration will there be found. The reader may follow the references to the 
succeeding generations, or proceed with the collaterals, as may be most 
interesting to him. Such references, however, have been often dispensed 
with ; mostly where the generations were few, and the numbers of each 

The small figures, placed after a name, denote the degree, or remove 
from Richard, the common ancester. Thus, John 1 , Joseph 2 , Samuel 3 , D. 
D., Nathaniel Appleton 4 , Nathaniel Appleton 5 . To prevent confusion, and 
to enable the reader more easily to distinguish with the eye, the heads of 
each branch are set in large capitals ; their children, with their husbands 
or wives, in small capitals ; and the grand-children in italics. 

In regard to the first and second generations, a disposition was felt to 
insert any facts, appearing on the records, though some of them may seem 


of little importance. They indicate something of the character and stand- 
ing of the ancestor ; arid, being all that his descendants may ever be able 
to learn, it has been judged best to insert them. As to the later genera- 
tions, it has been found both necessary and fitting to adopt a different 
course ; because no room could be found for the insertion of so many 
characters, and because all, of any consequence, are yet in the memory of 
the living ; to say nothing of the delicacy of discriminating among such 
a variety. of characters. 

Had the task been undertaken a few years sooner, before the decease of 
many aged persons, the account of the early generations might have been 
much more full. As it is, however, it may be deemed a benefit, by some 
of the descendants in future ages, that, by the assistance of the following 
pages, they can trace their descent from the first emigrant from England. 
Those of them, who shall take no interest in their ancestry, bending their 
whole energies to raise up other generations, will care nothing for this 
little book, or its author. But he has the proud consolation that they will 
have his testimony that they did not descend from him. 

The author has the satisfaction to believe that the two tables of the 
Graduates will be highly valued. They show, at a glance, all the gen- 
erations, between each graduate and the common ancestor. They have 
been compiled with great care, and are believed to be free from error. 

If errors should be found elsewhere, as doubtless there will be, they 
must be imputed partly to the intrinsic difficulty of obtaining truth from 
imperfect sources, and partly to that liability to error, which the author 
inherits in common with the race. Should he be charged with having done 
too little omitting many branches, and noticing others but imperfectly, 
he will balance the account, by claiming credit for having done so much. 





RICHARD HAVEN is said, by Lewis & Farmer, to have corne 
from the west of England, and to have settled at Lynn, Mass, 
in 1645, on a farm near Flax pond. He probably came a year 
sooner, as his first child was born there in February, 1645. 
Whether he took a wife in England, or found one here, is uncer- 
tain ; probably the latter. It is believed that one or more brothers 
came with him. Mrs. Frail, of Hopkinton, aged 88, says that 
her father, Benjamin Haven of Framingham, used to say that his 
great grand-father, Richard Haven, came from England with three 
brothers, each of whom had four sons. It is probable that the 
graduates of the name, at Yale College, descended from one or 
more brothers of Richard; viz. Nicoll Haven, 1753, and Jonathan 
N. Haven, 1777; and that Charles H. Havens, 1806, and Daniel 
W. Havens, 1843, are of the same stock, with a letter added to 
the name. John P. Haven, bookseller, N. York, in a letter to the 
late Horace A. Haven of Portsmouth, writes, that, "Jonathan N. 
Havens," (spelt Haven in the Col. Cat.) " was of another family, 
whose first ancestor in the country settled on the east end of 
Long Island, who, it is said, was a brother of Richard, and came 
over with him. That family spelt the name with an s." Presi- 
dent D wight says, " the county of Suffolk, L. I., was originally 
settled from New England. A considerable number of the col- 
onists were from Lynn." " The property of Shelter Island, prin- 
cipally, belongs to three 'families, Deering, Haven and Nicoll." 
(Dwight's Trav. Yol. 3, pp. 307 and 313.) In my researches I 
have not discovered any appearance of connexion, or even ac- 
quaintance, between the different branches. 

Little is known of the situation and character of Richard Haven, 
and nothing of his origin. There is a deed of 13 June, 1681, from 
John Wastol, of Saybrook, Conn, to the children of his " loving 


kinsman," Richard Haven of Lynn, carpenter; conveying 3000 
acres of land in Hebron, Conn., which he had by the will of 
Joshua Saohem; particularly 1000 acres thereof to John, son of 
said Richard. It is executed with the marks and seals of the 
grantor, and SUSANNA his wife, and recorded by the town clerk of 
Hebron, in 1718, book 1, page 173. It does not appear, by the 
records, that those lands were ever conveyed by any of the chil- 
dren. It does however appear, in book 2, page 93, that, in 1726, 
one Jonathan PAGE, as heir of Richard Haven, had 35 acres set off 
to him from " Haven's right, it being for land lost." This must 
have been a grandson of Richard Haven's son Richard. 

The Lynn Records show that children were born of RICH- 
ARD HAVEN, and SUSANNA his wife, as follows : 

HANNAH, 22 February ,-1645 ; MARY, 12 March, 1647; JOSEPH, 
22Feb'y. 1649; RICHARD, 25 May, 1651; SUSANNA, 24 April, 
1653; SARAH, 4 June, 1655 ; JOHN, 10 Dec. 1656; MARTHA, 16 
Feb'y, 1658, died 14 June 1659; SAMUEL, latter end of MAY, 
1660, died 1 Dec. 1660 ; JONATHAN, 18 Jan'y, 1662, died 3 July, 
1664; NATHANIEL, 30 June, 1664; MOSES, 20 May, 1667. 

The mother died at Lynn, 7 Feb'y, 1682. In 1692, it was 
" Voted that serjeant Haven," and seven others named, " should 
sit in the Pulpit." He made his will, 21 May, 1701, a copy of 
which is among the last pages. It was proved, 14 June, 1703. 

HANNAH HAVEN 1 married a GOODELL. She was a wid- 
ow at Lynn, at the date of her father's will, living in her own 
house, on her father's land. It appears, by the will, that she had 
then a daughter HANNAH, and one or more other children. On 
the 15 April, 1704, she was residing in Framingham, and John 
Haven indemnified the town against any charge for the support 
of " his sister Goodell arid child." 

MARY HAVEN and SUSANNA HAVEN 1 both married. One 
married JOHN TAR BOX, and probably left him a widower, with- 
out children. He is called a " son-in-law" in the will, and no wife, 
or children are mentioned. The other married a COGSWELL, 
and had a son WESTOLL, who is called a " grandson" in the will. 

JOSEPH HAVEN 1 is not alluded to in the will. All the other 
sons are expressly named. He must have died without children. 

RICHARD HAVEN 1 had a wife SUSANNA. The Lynn rec- 
ords only show that they had three children, viz : HANNAH, 10 
Aug. 1677; JOSEPH, 17 Aug. 1680; and SUSANNA, 1 Oct. 16S6. It 
appears, by the will of JOSEPH, made and proved in March, 1748-9, 
that he had a " sister, SARAH HAWKS ;" probably older than 
SUSANNA. HANNAH married JOHN PARKER, 18 July, 1693, then 
in her 16th year. It appears, by said Joseph's will, that they 
had Joseph, Sarah, Hannah, and Mary, and that the two last 
married and had children. JOSEPH appears to have been a bach- 
elor, of considerable property. By his will, he gives 75 to Joseph, 


son of his deceased sister, Hannah Parker ; 75 to the children 
of Hannah, a deceased daughter of said Hannah ; 75 to the 
children of Mary, another deceased daughter of said Hannah ; 
75 to Sarah a daughter of said Hannah ; 100 to his sister, 
Sarah Hawks of Lynn, widow ; 100 to his kinswoman, Sarah, 
wife of Benj. Grey ; 100 to his kinswoman, Hannah, wife of 
Jonathan Wait ; 50 to his housekeeper, Abigail Edmunds ; and 
to his Executors, Elkanah Hawks, and Jonathan Hawks, his 
" whole remaining estate." SUSANNA must have married a PAGE, 
and died, leaving Jonathan, the same before-mentioned as claim- 
ing lands in Hebron, as heir of his grandfather, Richard Haven. 1 
By the excellent index to the Lynn records, made by Mr. Lewis, 
it does not appear that the name of Haven was continued, in that 
town, beyond the children of Richard Haven, jr.; nor am I able to 
learn that any of the descendants of Richard Haven, senior, are 
now living in Lynn. The first had died before the date of his 
father's will. 

SARAH HA YEN 1 married a WHITNEY. She is called " my 
daughter, Sarah Whitney," in her father's will. Whether she had 
any children does not appear. 

JOHN HA YEN 1 married HANNAH HICHINS, at Lynn, 3 
Oct. 1682, by whom he had JOHN, born at Lynn, 8 June, 1683; 
ELKANAH, MARY and NATHAN, whose times and places of birth 
do not appear; JOSEPH, born at Fram., (then Sherburne,) in 1698, 
and HANNAH, in 1700, the year in which Fram. was incorporated. 
(See page 11J 

At the first town meeting, he was on a committee " to discourse 
with a lawyer." He was an original member of Mr. Swift's 
church, organized, 8 Oct. 1701. In the preceding May, he was on 
a committee to inquire as to the qualifications of Mr. Swift, and 
on another to give him a call. In July, 1701, he was on a com- 
mittee to settle differences with Sherburne. In 1702, he was on 
a committee to " seat the meeting-house," and was also selectman 
and Representative ; and was again Representative the next year. 
In May, 1704, the town voted to pay his attendance, " except Sun- 
days." After this, his name is not on the town records. The 
church records, before the 29 March, 1717, are lost. His widow, 
Hannah, took administration, 2 April, 1705. He had the addition 
of "joiner." Real estate, 160; personal, 226. One item is 
" sord and ivalking-stqff 6s." This staff, with his initials, is now 
possessed by John Haven Mixer, his great-great grandson, now 
living in VYorcester county, in the vicinity of Charlton. The 
widow, Hannah, married John How of Fram. July 1, 1712. 

NATHANIEL HAYEN 1 had ten children by his wife ELIZA- 
BETH ; born probably both before and after removing to Fram., 
where they are all recorded, on one page. MARTHA, 7 April, 1690; 
MOSES,! March, 1692; ELIZABETH, 11 Dec. 1693; MARCY, 26 


Jan'y, 1697; SUSANNA, 13 Feb. 1699; MORIAH, 4 Sept. 1701; 
EXPERIENCE, 23 April, 1703; NATHANIEL, 8 Sept. 1704; JEDE- 
DIAH, 23 Aug. 1706; JAMES, 4 March, 1710. (See p. 13.) The 
Lynn records show nothing of Nathaniel Haven, except his birth. 
He was a member of Mr. Swift's church in Fram., at its organiza- 
tion, in 1701; was surveyor in the same year; selectman in 
1706; constable in 1707 ; in 1708, he was " ordered to sit in that 
seat behind the table" as was also his brother Moses, in 1710. In 
1711, he was on committee to lay out a highway; was tything- 
man in 1723. In 1724, June 10, he married a second wife, HEP- 
SIBAH RUGG of Fram. He was on a com. to locate the rneet- 
ing-house in 1726 ; and nothing more appears of him till his death, 
at the age of 82 years, in 1746. His estate was not settled in the 
Probate office. 

MOSES HAVEN 1 had settled at Lynn, and had five children, 
at the date of his father's will, in May, 1701. He was nominated 
the Executor, and the will indicates that he was expected to re- 
main there. He did so until after his father's death in 1703, and 
was appointed Executor in June of that year. He must have re- 
moved to Fram. before 10 June, 1705, as his seventh child was 
born there on that day. He married MARY BALLORD of Lynn. 
Mrs. Sears, of Chatham, writes me that she was daughter of the 
great grandfather of William Ballord, senior, late of Fram., who 
married her sister, Anne Marshall. Farmer says there was a 
" William Ballord, of Lynn, in 1637; freeman, and member of Art. 
Co., in 1638 ; removed to Andover, and had sons, Joseph, William, 
and John, who settled there. There was a Nathaniel Ballord of 
Lynn, in 1650." He might have been the father, perhaps the 
brother, of MARY. Their children were born as follows : JO- 
SEPH, 8 Feb. 1689; SUSANNA, 20 Oct. 1690; RICHARD, 28 Jan. 
1693; MOSES, 11 Nov. 1695; MARY, 1 Oct. 1698; MEHITABEL, 
30 Jan. 1702, all at Lynn ; also, at Fram., SARAH, 10 June, 1705 ; 
and DANIEL, 16 June, 1708. (See p. 14.) He was on a com. to 
layout a highway, in 1709 ; selectman, in 1710; constable, in 1711 ; 
moderator and selectman, in 1712; on com. to seat the meeting-house 
in 1715; treasurer and moderator, in 1717; selectman, treasurer, 
constable and moderator, in 1718; treasurer and sealer of leath- 
er, in 1719; on com. to fill vacant seats in the meeting-house, in 
1720; on com. to hire schoolmaster in 1723; moderator, in 1725 ; on 
a com. to locate schools, in 1726; on com. to hire schoolmaster, in 
1727 ; selectman and moderator, in L728 ; moderator twice, in 1730, 
and was also on a com. to confer with Mr. Swift about his salary. 

The church records show that he was chosen Deacon, 29 March, 
1717; that he was a delegate to the ordination of Rev. Mr. Bar- 
rett, at Hopkinton, 2 Sept. 1724 ; March 21, 1725, " Deacon Haven 
spake that he should not hold forth the contribution box, because so 
few came to it" He married a second wife, ELIZABETH 
BRIDGES of Fram. ,27 Nov. 1735, and died, 14 Nov. 1747, aged 80. 


Jonathan Leland, Esq. of Sutton, who has furnished many in- 
teresting facts, writes me that he has seen his will, dated 1 July, 
1746, (which was cancelled) in which he names his sons, Joseph of 
Hop., Richard, Moses, Daniel; and his daughters, Susanna TOWN, 
Mary WARD, Mehitabel HAVEN, Sarah HEMENWAY, and his wife 
in the will. 

(Continued from page 9.) JOHN HA YEN 2 , son of John 1 , died, 
at Fram., on his father's place, in 1712, aged 29, unmarried. His 
u brother Elkanah " administered. His " mother, THREE broth- 
ers, and TWO sisters " shared his estate. 

ELKANAH HAVEN 2 , brother of the above, settled in Fram. 
His first wife was ABIAL BARBER, daughter of John Barber 
of Medfield, by whom he had MEHITABEL, 23 Aug. 1709; and 
ELIZABETH, 3 Feb. 1711. He married MARY WALKER, of 
Fram. 2 Dec. 1714; she died about 1716, soon after the birth of 
a son, JOHN. HE next married PATIENCE LELAND, of Sher- 
burne, 5 Feb. 1717, by whom he had SYBILLAH, in 1717, who 
died 19 Feb. 1749. SHE married SAMUEL EAMES, jr. of Fram., 
and had Patience, 6 Jan. 1740; Samuel, 1 Feb. 1742; Ebene- 
zer, \ Sept. 1744; Sybillah, 3 April, 1747; MICAH, 21 June, 
1719; ELKANAH, 21 July, 1721 ; and PATIENCE, 27 July, 1729. 
(See p. 16.) HE had a fourth wife, named LYDIA. He lived on 
the hill, south of the OLD Baptist meeting-house. He was consta- 
ble, in 1720; was on committees, in 1725, and 1726; selectman, in 
1730. He died suddenly in 1765. His son Dea. JOHN HAVEN, 
of Sutton, administered. His account is recorded, book 37, p. 

MARY HAVEN 2 , sister of the above, married a JOHNSON. 
Mrs. Sears remembers that she was called "Aunt Johnson." " Na- 
thaniel Johnson, and Mary Haven, married, 23 Nov. 1708." (Rec- 
ords of Sherburne.) It is believed that she left no children. " Na- 
thaniel Johnson, son of Nathaniel and Mary, died 21 July, 1733." 
(Fram. Records.) 

NATHAN HAVEN 2 , brother of the above, settled in Fram., and 
lived in the old Grout house, near Holliston. His wife's name 
was SILENCE, by whom he had SILENCE, 21 Dec. 1713; NA- 
THAN, 7 May, 1716 ; Lois, 4 Dec. 1721 ; PHINEHAS, 6 Oct. 1723 ; 
BULAH, 6 Nov. 1725 ; and ANNA, 12 May, 1731. His birth does 
not appear, but he was taxed in 1710. He was hog- reeve in 1724; 
on com. to defend title, in 1726; constable, in 1729; admitted to 
church, with his wife Silence, 15 June, 1718 ; both baptized the 
next sabbath ; will dated, 20 Sept. 1763; inventory returned, 9 
April 1764; recorded, book 39, p. 22; no children named in will ; 
property given to wife, SILENCE, and to grand children, Elisha, 
Silence, and Mehitabel Goddard, children of CAPT. ELISHA GOD- 
DARD of Sutton. The inventory contains a list of classical and lit- 


erary books, willed to young Elisha Goddard. They had probably 
belonged to his son Nathan, (Har. Col. 1737,) who died young. 
The other children had also died; all without children, except 
ANNA, who married CAPT. ELISHA GODDARD, of Pram., afterwards 
of Sutton, and had I. Elisha, 3 Dec. 1749, who died in 1771 , without 
children; 2. Silence, 18 Nov. 1752, who married Maj. Jonathan Hale, 
of Sutton. They afterwards lived some years in Pram., where he 
was Representative, in 1795; she died there, 15 Jan. 1800. He 
removed to Haverhill, N. H. Their children were Nathan, John, 
Susanna, Mary, who married Wm. Coolidge, Mehitabel and Nan- 
cy ; 3. Mehitabel, bom 17 July, 1755, married Hon. Benj. Heywood 
of Worcester, and had Mehitabel, who died, 18 June, 1839; Na- 
thaniel Moore, who married Caroline Sumner, of Boston, and died 
without issue, Oct. 1832 ; Bettj. P., born 24 April, 1792, (Dart. Col. 
1812,) physician, in Worcester. He married Nancy Greene, who 
died, 4 Aug. 1836; they had Benj., 16 July, 1821, (Har. Univ. 
1840;) Caroline, 7 Aug. 1823; Frederick, 30 June, 1825, now a 
Junior, at Dart. Col. ; John Green, born 24 May, 1828, died 10 
Feb. 1833. Dr. Heywood next married Elizabeth R. Green, and 
had Nathaniel M., 26 July, 1839, died an infant ; Nancy Green, 24 
Dec. 1840 ; John, 1 March, 1843. Benjamin and Mehitabel Hey- 
wood, also had Joseph in 1794 ; Lucy, who died, an infant, in Nov. 
1796; and Nancy, who died 30 Aug. 1814, aged 16. Their father 
died 6 Dec. 1816, aged 71. MRS. ANNA GODDARD, died in Oct. 
1756, aged 25. Her HUSBAND died 19 Jan. 1784, aged 64. 

JOSEPH HAVEN 2 , brother of the above, settled in Fram.; mar- 
ried his cousin, MEHITABEL, daughter of Moses 1 , 30 Nov. 1721. 
He had, by her, MEHITABEL, 29 Sept. 1722; ANNE, 1 April, 1725; 
SAMUEL, 4 Aug. 1727; MARY, 14 April, 1730; MARTHA, 19 Feb. 
1733 ; JOHN, 2 June, 1735 ; SYBILLAH, 18 April, 1738, who died 
young; DEBORAH, 11 Dec. 1740, who also died young; and SA- 
RAH, about 1742. (See p. 17.) He was on a com. to defend a title, 
and to defend a suit, in 1726; surveyor of highways, in 1732; se- 
lectman, in 1733 ; and on a corn., in same year, to defend Rev. Mr. 
Swift's complaint at court. He, and his wife, joined the church, 
June 9, 1723. He was a justice of the peace as soon as 1756 ; 
died 27 Feb. 1776, aged 78. His will is on file. In it, he liberates 
a slave, and orders plain gold rings to be made, with his name en- 
graved, for each of his grand children, being about 40. His wife 
died 25 Jan. 1780, aged 78. which agrees with her birth at Lynn. 
Both have tomb-stones in Fram, They lived near where Joel 
Coolidge lived, and lately died. 

HANNAH HAVEN 2 , sister of the above, married BENJAMIN 
BURNETT of Harvard. They lived in Hop., and had JOHN, 
MEHITABEL, HANNAH, SARAH and Lois. Mehitabel married a 
GOODELL, and lived in New-Braintree. The other three married 
late in life, and left no children. A letter, from Mrs. Sears, says, 


" They were all very intelligent women." John probably died 

(From p. 10.) MARTHA HAVEN 2 , eldest child of Nathaniel 1 , 
probably married her cousin Elder JOSEPH HAVEN. His 
wife's name was Martha. They were both born at Lynn, and 
must have been playmates there. They were separated, by the 
removal of Martha to Fram., and until Joseph removed there, some 
years after, aged about 16. Martha was one year younger; and 
it does not seem unnatural that, while recurring to the sports of 
childhood, they should bestow some thoughts on the future.

married ABIGAIL STONE, daughter of Hon. Josiah Stone of Fram., 
by whom he had seven children. (See p. 29.) 

The reader will excuse the feelings which induce the insertion 
of the following extract from the inscription placed over his 
grave : 

" In his person, he was dignified and modest ; in his intellect, 
vigorous and sound ; in his heart, benevolent and devout. His 
preaching was plain and practical, and his example added greatly 
to its power. The scriptures were his study and delight ; and, 
while he exercised the Protestant right of expounding them for 
himself, his candor toward the sincere, who differed from him, 
was in the spirit of the Gospel. The good Being, whom he lov- 
ed with supreme devotion, was pleased to grant him many years 
of prosperity and gladness, and to add not a few of affliction and 
sorrow. The first, he enjoyed with moderation and gratitude ; 


and, in the last, he exhibited the power of Religion to sustain and 
comfort the practical Christian. To his people, and his family, 
he was ardently attached, and spent his life in exertions and pray- 
ers for their welfare ; and they have placed this inscription to 
testify their reverence for his character, and their love for his 

We cannot mourn thee, Venerable Shade ! 
Whom Virtue led in triumph to the skies, 
While following Sorrow halted at the tomb."

DEAR Cousixs, 

The labor bestowed on the foregoing pages is more than compensated by the seeming 
acquaintance, which I have with you all. The coming year, as nearly as can be ascer- 
tained, will be the second Centennial Anniversary of the landing of our Common Ancestor, 
on the shore of Religious and Civil Liberty. Allow me respectfully to propose a meeting 
of his descendants, at this place, on the sixteenth of April next, at 2 P. M., to choose a 
Committee of Arrangements for a public celebration.

HAVEN, of Lynn, in the county of Essex, in the Province of Massa- 
chusetts Bay, in New England, being aged, and weak of body, yet God, 
of his goodness, affording to rne my right understanding, I take this op- 
portunity to make this My Last Will and Testament, as followeth. I 
resign up my spirit into the hands of my blessed Redeemer, the Lord 
Jesus Christ ; rny body to the earth, to be decently buried, at the discre- 
tion of my Executor, hereafter named; and, for my worldly estate, I Will 
and Bequeath as followeth : 

Imp. That all my just and honest debts be duly and honestly paid. 

I give to my son John Haven, five pounds in good pay, to be paid within two 
years after my decease, fifty shillings per year. 

I give to my son Nathaniel Haven, five pounds in good pay, to be paid within 
two years after my decease, fifty shillings per year. 

1 give to my grandson Joseph Haven, the son of my son Richard Haven, 
deceased, five shillings; the reason I give him no more is because I have given 
his father considerable before his decease. 

I give and bequeath to my son Moses Haven, his heirs and assigns, forever, 
my dwelling house and barn, and all that lot of land, where my house and barn 
now stands, excepting only so much as I, in this my will, give to my daughter 
Hannah Gooddell; also, I give to my son Moses Haven, his heirs and assigns, 
two lots of land lying in Rumney marsh, containing eleven acres at the least, 
with the full and just half of my lot of upland lying in RamsdelPs neck, so 
called, with all the privileges and appurtenances belonging to said house and 
lands, and all my moveable estate not disposed of in this my will ; and he to pay 
all the legacies herein mentioned. 

I give and bequeath to my daughter Hannah Gooddell the land her house 
stands on, and my little orchard, bounded westward by the land formerly Thomas 
Brown's ; southward, by the highway; eastward, as the fence now stands; north- 
ward, within two poles where the barn now stands ; my son Moses, to have half 
the fruit that shall grow upon the pippin tree, in said orchard, for seven years 
years after my decease; and my will is that the yard, that now lies open, shall so 
remain for the use of both houses; and after the decease of my daughter Han- 
nah Gooddell, then, if my son Moses Haven, or his heirs, shall see cause to pay 
to the heirs of my daughter Gooddell, the full value of the house my said daugh- 
ter now lives in, ancf the land said house stands on, and the said little or- 
chard, as shall be appraised by three indifferent men, if the parties cannot 
agree about the same, then my will is that the said house, orchard, and land, 
shall be to my son Moses Haven, and his heirs forever; or else, my will is that 
the said house, orchard, and land, as it is bounded, shall be to the heirs of my 
daughter Hannah Gooddell, and their heirs and assigns forever ; also I give to 
my daughter Hannah Gooddell, her heirs and assigns, the one full and just half 
of my lot of upland lying in Rainsdell's neck so called. 

I give to my son in law, John Tarbox, one shilling. 


I give to my daughter, Sarah Whitney, one cow. 

I give to my grandson, Westol Cogswell, one shilling. 

I give to my grand-daughter, Hannah Parker, twenty shillings. 

I give to my grand-daughter, Hannah Gooddell, my great iron kettle, and one 
brass pot, and one pewter platter. 

I give ten pounds in pay, to be divided equally among my son Moses Haven's 

I give ten pounds in pay, to be divided equally among my daughter Hannah 
Gooddell's children, to be paid within four years after my decease. 

1 give to my son, Nathaniel Haven, all my wearing clothes. 

Further, my will is that what legacies I have given in this my will, particu- 
larly mentioning pay, that so many of them as my executor shall see cause to 
pay in money, there shall be one third part abated of the sum that is therein 

I will and appoint my son, Moses Haven, my lawful and sole executor to this 
my last will and testament; and, for the confirmation hereof, I, the aforesaid 
Richard Haven, have set to my hand and seal, this twenty-first day of May, 
Anno Domini, one thousand seven hundred and one, in the thirteenth year of 
the reign of our sovereign lord, King William the third of England, &c.
